As much of a tradition as turkey and stuffing, the much anticipated 74th Annual McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade in Chicago will have over 400,000 guests at its celebration on State Street. Don’t miss the colossal contingent of favorite and six new gigantic helium balloons, 26 high-stepping marching bands, 13 majestic equestrian troupes, 18 fabulous holiday floats, 37 spectacular performance groups, national celebrities and local personalities. Plus, a special live performance from Phantom of the Opera and a “live wedding” in McDonald’s Snow Globe. The grand marshal, from the “greenest” Broadway show Wicked, everyone’s favorite witch Elphaba. And of course, the parade wouldn’t be complete without world-famous Ronald McDonald® as honorary grand marshal to help kick things off!
